Packet: Rezonings on Val Del, Great North Road, US 41 N @ LCC 2019-10-07

The second Natco subdivision on Val Del Road sailed through the Planning Commission, and probably will through the Lowndes County Commission. Where is that wetlands study GLPC took for granted somebody conducted?

The rezoning of the Wisenbaker property on Great North Road also sailed through GLPC 7:0.

The third rezoning, for heavy manufacturing on the Hogan Property at US 41 N and Wellman Place, was requested to be tabled by the applicant, and GLPC also voted to recommend tabling. The County Commission Agenda Sheet nonetheless says “RECOMMENDED ACTION: Board’s Pleasure”, in yet another example of the Planning Commission being merely advisory, with the County Commission being able to decide whatever it wants no matter what GLPC said.
